Star Wars: Force for Change — Kid Power!


Target Partners with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to Empower Kids to Get Active and Save Lives 

It’s no secret that kids across the U.S. have major superhero potential. And soon, they’ll have the power to save lives and help provide therapeutic food packets to kids around the world, just by getting active. Target is teaming up with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help bring UNICEF Kid Power to households and students across the country. To kick-off the partnership, Target will be the exclusive retailer of the Kid Power Band—the world’s first “wearable-for-good ™.”*

Funko POP! Figures Leaked at Target Reveals Exclusive Kylo Ren

Twitter follower @StudShooter managed to find a shelf full of Funko’s POP! figures for The Force Awakens which revealed Target will be having an exclusive Kylo Ren figure. A few quick images of the exclusive were taken to also reveal that Target’s version (#77) is a hood down variant while the standard release (#60) is a hood up version. Both should be available at Target on Force Friday.

No Bothans died to bring you this information, only an unsuspecting Target “red shirt”.

Target Clearances

target clearance deluxeAs you are likely aware, Target stores are marking down basically everything in their older Star Wars inventory prior to the Force Friday launch September 4.

Some stuff is down 50% now, including the 6″ scale deluxes at some stores for just $12.48 per forum member TVC15’s report (recall Target lowered the everyday price on these a while back once it became apparent that there wasn’t enough demand to move them at full retail of $39.99).

Personal Note:  If you’ve been holding out on these, the 6″ deluxes are pretty good, so passing on this price could lead to regret down the road...


Disney Infinity Star Wars Rebels Figures To Be Retailer Exclusive, Initially


A report from Infinity Inquirer has posted that each of the four Star Wars Rebels characters (Kanan, Ezra, Sabine and Zeb) revealed recently will initially be exclusive to 4 separate retailers as part of a timed release.

Kanan (Walmart)
Ezra (Toys”R”Us)
Sabine (Target)
Zeb (GameStop)

They also go on to say that after a few weeks, they should all be available  where Disney Infinity figures are sold.

Thanks to our friends at MakingStarWars.net for the heads-up.

Black Series Awakening at Target?


Over the weekend, forum member Jodo ran into something very few people have seen at a Target store in a long, long time… several new Black Series figures.  Not full cases, of course, since Target seems to reject the notion of giving their customers a full selection of Star Wars figures these days, but it still seems like a positive sign (I ran into some stores that also stocked last week, though it was as usual, just 2-3 figures at a time).

Keep those store reports coming in, and hopefully the last handful of figures from the final waves of pre-Episode 7 Black Series actually make it to the pegs in decent supply before the onslaught of product in September…

New TBS 6″ Continue to Hit Retail


On my way out of town prior to the Memorial Day holiday weekend, I managed to find the latest wave of 6″ Black Series figures which includes Emperor Palpatine, Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) and Clone Trooper Captain as well as the repack of Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise). This assortment (now in multi-lingual packaging) continues trickle out through retailers like Target and Toys”R”Us so keep your eyes open.
